JOSH'S NOTES - 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon
It seems like yesterday that we were knee-deep, quite literally, in the 2019 harvest. Dark ruby in the glass, it opens up aromatically in the same fashion. Dark fruits like blackberry and Bing Cherry, followed up by graphite, wood shavings, and baking spice. Ultra-balanced with long, fine-tannins and great acidity. The finish on this wine is incredible - which is something that I love about great Cabernet. Drink now through the next 15-20 years.
JOSH'S NOTES - 2019 Stolen Horse Syrah
Walla Walla has crazy diversity within its soil compositions and microclimates to grow wine grapes in. With Syrah, we are really able to showcase that, but are also able to make one blend that is overall, quintessentially Walla Walla. This vintage is a blend of four separate vineyards - all extremely different than the other and makes for maybe my favorite Stolen Horse yet. Hints of smoked meat, green olives, iodine, and berry reduction sauce. This wine has incredible mouthfeel, great texture, absolutely silky tannins, and great acid. Excited to see how this evolves over the coming years!
